The universal content viewer defined
June 13, 2014 -- Is your healthcare facility considering the implementation of a universal viewer? If so, you may have a few questions about how universal viewers work and their relationship to vendor-neutral archives. In this article, Imad Nijim of Perceptive Software offers his perspective.  Discuss
Quantitative US gauges cellular tumor treatment response
June 13, 2014 -- Canadian researchers have succeeded in measuring chemotherapy treatment response in mice at the microscopic level using quantitative ultrasound combined with maximum mean discrepancy measurements, according to a new study in IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging.  Discuss
MDCT: CT perfusion opens new windows in pancreatic disease
June 12, 2014 -- SAN FRANCISCO - Pancreatic imaging with CT perfusion (CTP) offers new ways to view the pancreas, unveiling dangerous tumors that are difficult to see with conventional CT and potentially offering more patients the chance for a cure, according to a talk at the International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT (MDCT).  Discuss
Cancer: Screening mammo cuts incidence of late-stage cancer
June 12, 2014 -- Over the past 30 years, screening mammography has not only identified more early-stage breast cancer, it decreased the incidence of late-stage disease by more than a third, according to a study published online in the journal Cancer.  Discuss
MDCT: Kalender offers update on breast CT
June 12, 2014 -- Clinical trials for a high-resolution breast CT scanner will begin in Germany in early 2015, according to a talk by Willi Kalender, PhD, at the International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT (MDCT). The hope is that the technology will outperform full-field digital mammography and breast tomosynthesis at equivalent dose levels.  Discuss
MDCT: Setting up a lung cancer screening program
June 11, 2014 -- SAN FRANCISCO - If your institution doesn't have a lung cancer screening program, it's probably time to set one up, according to a presentation on Tuesday at the annual International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT (MDCT).  Discuss
MDCT: Is California's dose reporting law really working?
June 11, 2014 -- SAN FRANCISCO - Is the California law requiring imaging facilities to report radiation dose to patients really working? Yes, but perhaps not in the way the legislation's authors had intended, according to a series of talks at the International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT (MDCT).  Discuss
SNMMI: PET, MRI may predict pediatric brain tumor outcomes
June 11, 2014 -- ST. LOUIS - Researchers from Boston Children's Hospital have found that certain PET and MR imaging characteristics of brain tumors in pediatric patients may help predict progression-free and overall survival, according to a study presented on Tuesday at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) meeting.  Discuss
MDCT: Future CT scanners will deliver more image, less noise
June 10, 2014 -- SAN FRANCISCO - Today's CT scanners can deliver, at best, about two-thirds of the signal and dose they output into their images. But continued progress toward sharper images and lower dose will require future generations of CT scanners to do better -- and within a few years they will, according to an opening-day talk at the International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT (MDCT).  Discuss
SNMMI: ARMI trial shows benefits of Rb-82 PET for heart disease
June 10, 2014 -- ST. LOUIS - Trial results presented on Monday at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) meeting show that rubidium-82 PET outperformed thallium-201 SPECT for diagnosing obstructive coronary artery disease -- all while exposing patients to less radiation.  Discuss
